: THE BISHOP OF WOOLWICH

delivers a new version of his
Lecture on Atheism
In its original form this lecture was given tn November last at Frankfurt-am-Main University, to mark the opening of an Exhibition on Atheism. Eastern and Western, sponsored by the church in the Federal Republic.
' God as we have been led to posit him is intellectually superfluous. is emotionally dispensable, is morally intolerable-and yet. in grace and demand, he will not let us go. The hound of heaven still dogs us. the beyond in our midst still encounters us. when all the images. all the projections, even all the words of God. have been broken.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
